Baklava Recipe

Ingredients
  • 1 pound filo pastry
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (or to taste)
  • 1 cup crushed walnuts or other nuts (cashews and almonds work well)
  • whole cloves

  • Preheat oven to 300°F.
  • Mix the sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Add the crushed nuts and set aside.
  • Grease a baking pan that is long enough for the filo pastry to be laid flat.
  • Take five sheets of filo and set in the bottom of the pan. Brush each layer with butter.
  • After placing the five layers in the bottom, take a handful or two of the filling (sugar/nuts) and place a layer of it on top of the filo.
  • Take two more sheets and place on top, buttering each sheet.
  • Continue placing two sheets of buttered filo and filling. The top layer of the baklava should have five sheets of buttered filo, just like the bottom layer.
  • Place a whole clove in each piece for flavor.
  • Place the baklava in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes or until the melted butter solidifies.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven; slice the pieces, remembering to keep the clove near the center of each piece.
  • Drizzle honey (to taste) on the top.

    Note: As an alternative to the honey, you can drizzle on a syrup made from boiling water, sugar, and stick cinnamon.
